What To Watch On Netflix This July

Netflix is releasing tons of original content this July to keep us entertained on days that it’s just too hot to leave our comfortable, air-conditioned homes. Everything from crime dramas to science fiction series to documentaries are coming to the network this month.

Returning Favorites: Between, Marco Polo, and Bojack Horseman

Back for second seasons are Canadian science fiction drama series Between and Marco Polo. New episodes will be released weekly after they have aired in Canada. Both drop July 1. Bojack Horsman, the animated original starring Will Arnett, returns for season three.

Jim Jeffries: Freedumb and Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru

Australian comedian Jim Jeffries is back with another stand-up special called Freedumb, designed to examine just how much “freedom” exists in the land of the free. In his last special he covered gun control among other controversial issues in the US, and is expected to do the same this time. Drops July 1. Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru is a Netflix original documentary inside the life of self-help personality Tony Robbins. Drops July 15.

Stranger Things and Marcella

Two crime-related series premiere this month. Marcella is a British drama that follows one police officer’s career. Drops July 1. Stranger Things is a drama set in 1980s Indiana about the search for a missing boy. It was originally titled Montauk and took place on Long Island. Drops July 15.


Tallulah seems nothing like Juno, but it is a dramedy that reunites the movie’s co-stars Ellen Page and Allison Janney. In the Netflix original movie, Page plays a struggling young woman who takes a baby away from negligent parents. Janney plays a woman who thinks she’s the child’s godmother. It was a hit at the Sundance Film Festival this year and the network hopes to take the film all the way to the Oscars. It was written by Orange Is the New Black writer Sian Heder and also co-stars Uzo Aduba. Drops July 29.

Netflix also releases unoriginal favorites every month. This year some of those titles include the critically acclaimed The Big Short, Lethal Weapon and the Back to the Future trilogy. Exact release dates are not confirmed at the time this article was written.
